No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 is a 99% solution.

.223 Rem and a .338WM or .375 AI or .375 Weatherby. Though, as a handloader.....if I had to, I could get by without the .223 Rem! wink memtb

I have thought about this for a couple of days.

Pragmatic thinking would be a 223 and 30-06.

But I would like a minimum of four.

Quick non-scientific tally. 74 responses to-date. .223 Remington leading on the "light" side with 30 votes. .243Win in second with 9 votes. Not surprisingly, 30-06 leading on the "heavy" side with 23 votes. 338WM in second with 6 votes.
